Urlacher out with calf injury
November 15, 2004
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bears Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Urlacher will miss four to six weeks with a lower left leg injury sustained in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Tennessee Titans.
Urlacher, who missed all of the preseason and two regular-season games with a hamstring problem, had a surgical procedure done early Monday morning on his leg, coach Lovie Smith said.
There was some internal bleeding in the area of the injury, Smith said. He said Urlacher would not be put on injured reserve.
The Bears (4-5) have a three-game winning streak, based on the stellar play of their defense, heading into Sunday's game against the Colts.
